I did not so much find this as I was smacking in the face with it on Exclaim.ca. This comes from the Pack A.D. everyones favourite Canadian two piece. They were recently in Toronto as part of NXNE and I got to see them. All I can say is that it was intense.
I wanted to find a way to describe this song without using the word ‘stomper’ or ‘bruiser’ but I just couldn’t. It is exactly that. Their trademark fuzz riffs, crash cymbal and hair-metal like cockiness. It is all I could ever want.
Their new album Unpersons is on the way, check out the track HERE - LM
‘I bet those guys at NXNE and Exclaim! have crazy parties we don’t hear about until there’s a photo series on it the next week on Vice.’
‘I heard they have snowcones spiked with Jäger.’
Consider my interest piqued.
‘Man, I wish I could attend that Young Rivals NXNE show without leaping the fence at Cadillac Lounge.’
Ok, ok. Check it out:
Basically, if you’ve ever said any of the above OR if you have an affinity for alcoholic summer treats you’ll probably dig the contest we’re throwing: nine of your best buds and you could be attending the annual BBQ Bash June 17 at Cadillac Lounge, featuring Young Rival, The Artist Life, and more. All you have to do is hit up the Exclaim! website HERE and answer the skill-testing question. The answer is pretty much handed to you, so it’s pretty much impossible to get it wrong. See you there on the 17th!
Jacques Greene is an electronic producer, bass aficionado and our country’s best-known proponent of pitched RnB vocals - I’m avoiding using “post-dubstep” or “future bass” because his sound is a bit of both - and a whole lot more. Greene hails from Montreal, where the 21-year old will make his proper live debut tomorrow night (June 1) as part of Mutek. Greene’s contemporaries hail from the UK more often than not (Deadboy, Kingdom, Instra:mental) although the scene has recently taken off with a bang outside Europe, such as in Toronto - with big releases and a number of gigs from burgeoning bass acts Egyptrixx, XI, and promising up-and-comer Kevin McPhee. Greene will be debuting his live show in Toronto June 17 at the Garrison during NXNE, playing after an unnamed “special guest”. A must-see. Check out Greene’s “Another Girl” above.
If you’re in Montreal and are able to catch one show this summer, let it be one of Jacques Greene’s.
